Market Day

I finally got out with my camera this weekend and I explored the market near our home. Some people were very nervous about the camera, some suspicious and concerned about my intentions, but many were intrigued by the camera and happy to oblige. The morning was not only spent photographing but also talking to people and seeing them in a whole new light. I have promised to take some photos back next week for them to keep. I imagine there are a number of people there who have never owned a photograph of themselves.

    I just stumbled upon your site, but had to comment. I have spent the past seven years, part-time, living in Uganda and your photos capture daily life better than any I have ever seen! There is so much within these photos that words alone cannot describe.
